Blepharoplasty: Everything You Need To Know About Eyelid

As the saying goes, the eyes are the mirror of the soul. Much more than an institution, the beauty of the gaze is an asset that we sublimate.

What Is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is cosmetic eyelid surgery that can be done in clinics like lovely eye (เลิฟลี่อาย which is the term in Thai) for instance aimed at correcting the signs of aging present in the eyes. The operation ends with heavy, drooping eyelids with a tired appearance and allows you to regain a more harmonious and refreshed appearance. We distinguish:

Upper blepharoplasty for drooping and heavy eyelids.

Lower blepharoplasty concerning eyelids wrinkled by sagging skin and sagging.

Fat hernias are the cause of “bags under the eyes” located at the level of the lower eyelids and make the eyelids puffy or puffy.

Coverage by health insurance is rare except in the case of particular pathologies (in particular congenital causing discomfort for vision).


Blepharoplasty makes it possible to rejuvenate the look by eradicating drooping eyelids, erasing wrinkles under the eyes due to excess skin, and removing dark circles and fatty pockets located under the eyes without distorting the expression of the face.

Who Is Blepharoplasty For?

Blepharoplasty is performed around forty when the first signs of skin alteration due to aging appear. It is possible to have recourse to this operation earlier if the disgraces are congenital (hereditary factors) and not related to age, such as certain “constitutional fatty pockets.” This operation concerns both men and women.

Preoperative Phase And Recommendations

During the first consultation, the practitioner will practice an interrogation, an examination to properly assess the mechanisms involved and a photographic assessment. Following the prescriptions, a preoperative assessment is carried out to eliminate a coagulation disorder (especially if history exists). In addition, an ophthalmological examination will be prescribed to detect any ocular pathology likely to contraindicate the operation.

During the first consultation, a detailed estimate must be submitted detailing all the terms of the intervention. A reflection period of 15 days will be mandatory for any cosmetic surgery intervention. If the intervention does not occur under local anesthesia, an anesthesiologist will be seen in consultation at the latest 48 hours before the intervention to obtain his agreement.
